STEM Extension Activities for Early Learning Settings

Listen to Shannon from Oh, Creative Day share ideas on how to engage children in STEM activities to extend the reading experience. In this video series she is using the book Let’s Build a House by Mike Lucas to explore the idea of community, but you can use any book related to building, construction, neighbourhoods or communities.

Other books that relate to communities include:

· Today We Have No Plans
· To get to me
· Come Down Cat
